"Raw unadulterated rock 'n roll straight out of Rhode Island, the McGunks "Here Comes The Shame" is a must have for any fan of the Boston area music scene. This album is reminiscent of the full force fury that the Ducky Boys "Dark Days" album possessed. In short if you liked that, then you'll love this." - Joe Venta

This cd is full of catchy punk rock anthems! After hearing some song previews I had to buy the whole album. And I buy very few cds! I love everything about this- lyrics, vocals, music... It all comes together perfectly. I recommend it to anyone looking for something that rocks and doesn't sound like everything else out there. - Album Purchaser


Full Length CD's - "Here Comes The Shame" (2004 - Re-released (2008)), "Ugly American Dream" (2009), Multiple Compilation Appearances



The McGunks formed in 2003 out of the remains of other notable Boston area bands with a goal of writing songs for the modern drunkard. Using classic 50’s pop rock sensibility and a strong punk rock ethic combined with roots rock styles as diverse as country and celtic music The McGunks have discovered a way to create songs that are both familiar and new. With song titles such as “3 More Beers” and “Can’t Drink Here No More” it is easy to figure out what The McGunks influence is. In 2005 The McGunks released their first full length album entitled “Here Comes the Shame” independently to favorable reviews. That album, which was re-released in 2008 due to popular demand, enabled The McGunks to perform on select dates of the 2005 warped tour, a finals position in the 2006 WBRU rock hunt as well as sharing the stage with notable Boston area bands such as Street Dogs & the Ducky Boys. The band, Bob Kadlec (vocals/guitar), Joe Fernandes (guitar/vocals), John Stone (drums), and Pete Martone (bass/vocals) look forward to releasing their second full length album “Ugly American Dream” on Winter Street Records in early 2009. Following the release of “Ugly American Dream” The McGunks will continue to perform through out the New England area and where ever else there is alcohol.
